I research and write with the public in mind. Here are a few instances of that public conversation.
The measure of everyday life
I joined WNCU's Brian Southwell, the host of the syndicated radio program on social science, The Measure of Everyday Life. We discussed the Mapping Inequality project, as well as the consequences of racial segregation, and the geography of political contests.
Upon the release of Mapping Inequality, I spoke with Natalie Moore, South Side reporter for WBEZ, about HOLC, redlining, and racial segregation.
I spoke with reporter Whet Moser about redlining and the role of Chicago-area social scientists in creating a theory of urban development and turning that into a segregationist housing program through the Home Owners' Loan Corporation and the Federal Housing Administration.
